Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Jeff - HTML coding evaluation, Win XP browsers

Jeff, I just deleted my history and temp files. Then I shutdown my computer entirely, power-cycled it, and rebooted. I just noticed most centering was just fixed, not 100%. I'm guessing maybe 90% fixed, in my case. I used a lot of tables. No problems at all in Firefox during my few spot-checks. Good. Minor centering bugs in just a couple of my tables remain. I checked just a couple of my items. At a glance, it was just a few new centeing things in IE and Opera. But Firefox was 100% fine. I could change my HTML on a couple of things. In my case, who cares? I'll make it look good. I could have some bad code in a few spots. Maybe not. I make repairs, corrections, and upgrades as I go, as neccesary.

The Opera Flash Player "dead-space bug" is fixed.

SYF logo code removed.

RE: "when IE renders the web pages from The Forums, the "Poster / Date / Forum / Subject" area flies way out to the right side of the page. The page structuring falls apart in this scenario. It looks very ugly."

This UGLY IE Problem is FIXED!!! - Thanks, good job!

That's why it's called Internet Exploder!!!



my Win XP - HTML evaluation...

- GD home page looks better in IE. Before, the new large GD image on top bumped everything down. This is fixed. However, look 6 strings of text below this image. Observe the text string, "Grateful Dead Shows on This Day in History."
Just below this text string, you still have a HTML coding error - pointing to a server's Physical Path, no longer valid. Repair the bad HTML code that's pointing to the SYF logo that no longer displays there.

BAD CODE
If you don't want the SYF logo to display, remove this code: < img src="http://ia311306.us.archive.org/1/items/GratefulDead/GratefulDeadLogo.jpg" alt="Grateful Dead" > This code is causing IE to render and insert a 158 x 158 pixel empty space there. Old problem here, once the physical path became no longer valid. Only causes problems in IE, not in Firefox and Opera. Here's the fix for this bad code, if you want the SYF logo to display in browsers.

Edit the coded link to its Virtual Path. Then the SYF logo will be rendered in all browsers correctly, below "Grateful Dead Shows on This Day in History."

MISSING SYF LOGO

- In general, and overall, IE is rendering My Items noticeably nicer. Some of these are small tweaks. My web designs are HTML-heavy. IE looks better now. IE suffers more than Opera and Firefox Several new centering troubles remain in Opera and IE on my Table tags. A few < td > tags are going center-aligned when then should be defaulting to left-aligned. Check your CSS.

- Flash Audio player: IE looks better. I seem to recall, before, the player list dropped down all the way. If the set list was 30 tracks, all 30 tracks dropped down in the player. Took up lots of extra space. Now it drops down 15, same as Opera and Firefox. Good. It's fine. There's a new extra-space problem in the Flash Control Panel. Opera is my only Browser that has extra space problem. Its in the Flash Player area - 130 pixels of extra vertical space just below the controls, above the top of the play list. Just Opera has extra space, not IE and Firefox. IE and Firefox. Flash Player looks fine in all 3 browsers using the old tag (default cookie). Good.

Firefox has the least number of new "centering bugs" The only "centering bugs" I could find in Firefox are: Flash Player track lists are centered; and all the text in columns in The Forums are listed in center-alignment.

I have not checked for continuous track playing. When it works for others, it'll work fine for me. My video item rendered and played fine in all 3 of my browsers.

My Browsers:
• Opera 11.11
• Firefox 4.0.1
• Internet Exploder ver 8.0.6001.18702
